Photos: A Day on College Hill offers a taste of life at Brown

More than 1,000 admitted students convened on College Hill for two days of introductory experiences and activities organized for Brown’s Class of 2028.

PROVIDENCE, R.I. [Brown University] — From “speed friending” and residential tours to a food truck festival and student performances, activities abounded during A Day on College Hill, which offered events and experiences for admitted undergraduates at Brown University.

More than 1,000 admitted members of the Class of 2028 convened on campus over the course of two days — Friday, April 12, and Friday, April 19 — to immerse themselves in life at Brown through panel discussions, an overview of Brown’s signature Open Curriculum, residential tours, departmental open houses, Providence trolley tours and more.

Commonly referred to as ADOCH, the events drew admitted students from 42 U.S. states, as well as Washington, D.C., and Puerto Rico, and 27 other countries. They were among the 2,521 talented students who were admitted to Brown’s undergraduate Class of 2028.

Organized by the Office of Undergraduate Admission, A Day on College Hill also welcomed parents, who had the opportunity to independently participate in a Q&A with current Brown students and attend a support services fair to learn more about the resources available to students throughout their time at Brown. 

“A Day on College Hill is a time-honored rite of passage at Brown that gives admitted students a valuable opportunity to immerse themselves in life at Brown as they make this tremendously important decision,” said Logan Powell, associate provost for enrollment and dean of undergraduate admission. “It was wonderful to see participation in a full range of opportunities as admitted students experienced aspects of what makes a Brown education such a special experience.”

Admitted students have until Wednesday, May 1, to accept the University’s offer of admission.
